Writing OSHA-Compliant Fall Protection Plans for Residential Foundation Contractors
OSHA will permit residential foundation contractors to work atop formwork, without conventional fall protection, if conventional fall protection is infeasible and/or causes a greater hazard. The key to being OSHA compliant is contractor implementation of a written, site-specific, Alternative Fall Protection Plan (AFPP). Utilizing a simple AFPP template, attendees in this seminar will walk through the step-by-step process of knowing when an AFPP can be utilized, creating an AFPP that meets comprehensive OSHA requirements, and assembling documentation to support infeasibility or greater hazard assessments of conventional fall protection. Contractors can meet their burden of proof.
1. Describe working conditions in which OSHA allows an Alternative Fall Protection Plan (AFPP) to be utilized
2. Explain OSHA’s definition of infeasibility and greater hazard when evaluating fall protection systems
3. Analyze feasibility of utilizing OSHA regulated fall protection systems
4. List and explain prescriptive requirements of a written, OSHA compliant AFPP
